Trailer Trash: The March 25th Quickie

I can't believe it's already Friday! At one point this week seemed to be moving in reverse; now if the weekend would only move as slowly so I can catch up on some good theater. We've got two new releases going head to head against the NCAA tournament according to IMDb.Shall we?

Sucker Punch My best guess is Zack Snyder had one helluva wet dream over Mia Wallace's Fox Force Five in Pulp Fiction and, years later, Sucker Punch was born. Visually, our eyeballs will explode from the sensory smorgasbord, but I get the feeling it'll be one complex, confusing-ass story to follow. I expect Abbie Cornish will steal the show with her big A sword, and this is coming from the guy going mainly to see Carla Gugino work that corset.

Verdict: Moist With Antici...Pation!

Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules I was interested in seeing the first installment of the Wimpy Kid's adventures, but never got around to it. Apparently, it must have a Twilight level of appeal given they've cranked out a sequel almost exactly one year later. This one looks equally silly, but will probably be less enjoyable. I'd say I'd go see it, but I'll just wait another year to see if they'll crank out the remaining three books in a four-film installment.

Verdict: It's Friday, I Don't Want to be Alone.

This weekend promises wet and dreary weather in my area. Perfect for catching some quality theater time. Have a good one!

  1. Hope you write a review for SUCKER PUNCH cos I'd like to read your thoughts.

    Rushed to the nearest theater for the first showing, and sadly, did not live up to my expectations, which weren't huge, just with the desire to have some fun. Browning kicked major ass, nonetheless.

  2. No and no. Too many things out already that I'm interested in seeing...

  3. @Andy- Saw Sucker Punch Sunday and I'm writing a review right now. I know, can you believe it?! It will not be overly kind.

    @Fletch- What's top of your must-see list right now, aside from Win Win?

  4. In theaters now? Rango, Cedar Rapids, maybe The Lincoln Lawyer since it's gotten such good reviews.

    I will likely only see two of those three.

    Coming up? HP7.2, Super 8, Elektra Luxx (doubt it'll play here), Hangover 2, maybe Source Code.

  5. I enjoyed Cedar Rapids. I'm curious about Lincoln Lawyer, too, but I may wait on the cheap show before I go.

    I doubt we'll get Elektra Luxx either, but if we do, I'm there. I know Hangover 2 can't top the first one, but I'm not going to miss it. HP7.2 is a requirement; why would I stop now?

    I don't know how I feel about Super 8. Guess I need to make up my mind on it's potential, got to get my brackets in very soon!

  6. Fletch - I never even heard of ELEKTRA LUXX until a hour ago when I was reading your comment, and then I looked at the showtimes for next week at the local Mankato theater, and lo and behold, we're gonna have ELEKTRA LUXX.

    RW - Off to read your completely in love and full of accolades review of SUCKER PUNCH!

  7. Andy, you're getting Elektra Luxx? Lucky.

    Hope you enjoy my glowing SP review.
